We were looking for a beautiful pourover stand to add to our brewing equipment offerings, but the options left us wanting. We set out to design an iconic, beautiful stand made by a local craftsman that would stand the test of time. We are proud to introduce the Clive Stand, a culmination of several months of design and prototyping with Delaney Kelly of Carthagh Craft & Design.
The stand is made of salvaged Oregon Walnut that was too small for other purposes and headed for the burn pile. We strived for a design aesthetic that is clean and functional with a focus on composition.
Unemployment up and manufacturing down - The economy sucks - Sound familiar?
Yes, things are challenging at the moment but maybe it's not all doom and gloom. Maybe we can still make things in this country and make them well. Maybe with a little vision, ingenuity, and good old fashioned elbow grease, we can right the ship. LABOR OF LOVE is a series that explores the stories of small businesses that are still making things in America. Uncommon Brewers is one of these businesses. As a small craft brewery in Santa Cruz, CA, Uncommon Brewers has taken a unique approach to their product and marketplace. Take a look at how they are not just surviving in today's economy, but excelling.
